Jonathan Lucroy is the 2014 Most Valuable Brewer
You voted over the weekend, and the results were overwhelming. By a very wide margin, Jonathan Lucroy is who you voted as the Most Valuable Brewer of 2014.
Carlos Gomez voted second most valuable Brewer
Gomez had arguably his best year at the plate yet and will certainly receive some small consideration for the NL MVP award.
Most Valuable Brewers 2014
A list of players as voted by the readers of BCB as the most valuable players of 2014.
Wily Peralta voted Brewers' Most Valuable Pitcher
He was selected for the #3 spot in our annual ranking of the season's best Brewers.
Kyle Lohse takes the 2nd spot in a strong rotation
Kyle Lohse continued to pitch well in 2014, giving the starting rotation a formidable 1-2 punch with Peralta.
Yovani Gallardo: MVBrewer #5
Yo moves up three spots after placing 8th in last year's poll thanks to another rock solid season on the mound.
Oh no! A Fiers started in MVBrewers #6!
Fiers brought stability to the rotation in August and September
Francisco Rodriguez's weird year: MVBrewer #7
K-Rod had a year of wild extremes in the general departments of luck and skill.
MVBrewers #8: Ramirez's down year was good enough
One of baseball's oldest regulars was still an All Star in 2014.
MVBrewers #9: Matt Garza meets expectations
The Brewers paid for a significant contributor in free agency, and that's what they got in Matt Garza's first season.
MVBrewers #10: Scooter Gennett
After taking the second base job in 2013, Scooter Gennett continued to solidify his position there with a good 2014 season.
MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Rickie Weeks
Weeks had his best offensive season since 2012 while platooning with Scooter Gennett
MVBrewers Honorable Mentions: Khris Davis
Khris Davis had a fine first full major league season and is the second honorable mention in our MVBrewers series.
MVBrewers Honorable Mentions: Will Smith
Will Smith, like the Brewers at large, started very strong and faded towards the middle and end of the season.
MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Zach Duke
Duke was a diamond-in-the-rough for the Brewers after first being signed on a minor league deal.
MVBRewers Honorable Mention: Grumpy Mark Reynolds
The grumpiest Brewers slugger ever in today's MVBrewers Honorable Mention
MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Ryan Braun
In 2011, Ryan Braun was the NL MVP. In 2012, he was the NL MVP runner-up. In 2014, he couldn't even finish in the top-10 of most valuable Brewers.
MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Jimmy Nelson
An excellent season in the minors earned Jimmy Nelson a spot in the Brewers rotation in the middle of the season. Where will he go from here?
Lesser Brewers: You forgot about these guys
Remember Josh Stinson? Of course not. This is about those guys.
Lesser Brewers: Jeff Bianchi
Jeff Bianchi couldn't hit enough to stay with the Brewers. Now, he's a free agent.
Lesser Brewers: Wei-Chung Wang
The Brewers took a chance on a prospect and to nearly everyone's surprise it's worked out so far.
Lesser Brewers: Jim Henderson
Jim Henderson was the sixth-most valuable Brewer in 2013. Injury ruined his 2014 campaign, though.
Lesser Brewers: Matt Clark
Matt Clark mashes in the minors and showed a strong bat in a brief major league stint. But there may not be room for him on the roster in 2015.
Lesser Brewers: Tyler Thornburg
Tyler Thornburg excelled in his transition to the bullpen, but an elbow injury limited his effectiveness and eventually ended his season.
Lesser Brewers: Logan Schafer
Logan Schafer provided a needed outfield backup for the Brewers, but saw his playtime time diminish as he continued to struggle at the plate.
Lesser Brewers: Lyle Overbay
Lyle Overbay wasn't the most exciting choice to platoon at first base, but he proved his value as the season wore on.
Lesser Brewers: Rob Wooten
"Sometimes ERA is not the best indicator of performance," said Rob Wooten. (I assume, anyway)
Lesser Brewers: Brandon Kintzler
Kintzler fell off a bit last season -- serving up home runs all over the place -- but he continues to be effective enough to remain a fixture in middle relief for the Brewers.
Lesser Brewers: Marco Estrada
Marco Estrada's final season with the Brewers was far from his best. But even in defeat there was value to be found.
MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Martin Maldonado
The Brewers' backup catcher put together a bizarrely interesting campaign in 2014 as the lead actor in many of the season's finest moments.
MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Jeremy Jeffress
An April minor league free agent pickup turned into a great asset for the 2014 Brewers.
MVBrewers Honorable Mention: Gerardo Parra
He wasn't the trade deadline acquisition many wanted, but he was the trade deadline acquisition the Brewers needed.
